Both Clintons will campaign in Mississippi; Obama expected

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will speak Thursday at a Mississippi Democratic Party dinner in Canton and will appear in Hattiesburg on Friday.

The Jefferson Jackson Hamer Day Dinner is at 7:30 p.m. at the Canton Multipurpose & Equine Center.

Her campaign Web site says Clinton also will campaign at a breakfast and town hall meeting from 9-11 a.m. tomorrow at a train depot in downtown Hattiesburg.

Mississippi is the only state with presidential primaries next Tuesday.

Former President Bill Clinton also will campaign for his wife tomorrow in north Mississippi.       Her campaign Web site says the former president will attend a 5:30-7:30 p.m. fish fry at the Tupelo Furniture Mart. The campaign had announced Wednesday that Bill Clinton would appear Friday in Hattiesburg, Meridian and Tupelo.

But her Web site on Thursday didn't mention Hattiesburg or Meridian as stops for Bill Clinton.

A campaign staff member for Clinton's Democratic rival, Sen. Barack Obama, said Obama plans to campaign in Mississippi before the primary but plans have not been set.
